As the temperature rises, sandals are going to be our go-to shoe of choice. We’re just a few weeks away from the official start of sandal season, and that means it’s time to start stocking up on some of this season’s hottest designs, as well as time to make an appointment with our local manicurist for a mani-pedi.
I go through phases with my nails; I won’t get a manicure for years on end, and then suddenly, one day, something clicks over in my brain and I’m back to a high-maintenance nail routine. I got my first set of nail extensions in over a decade last month, and as you might expect, I’ve been thinking about nail colors and textures a lot since then.
Although it’s been years since I dressed up for Halloween, I still love the holiday and the pseudo-goth it brings out in so many of us. As always, one of the best ways to subtly (and affordably) celebrate any kind of seasonal look is through little changes in your beauty routine.
Christian Louboutin‘s nail polish line was a hit as soon as it landed in stores, and now the brand is venturing outside of its standard colors and finishes for a few limited edition polishes. The Christian Louboutin Scarabee Collection consists of two duochrome and one multichrome polish, all in special packaging with gold tops.
When I wrote about pastel spring bags last week, you guys were pretty much in agreement–the colors are just so nice to look at, so clean and feminine. An expensive, ultra-light purchase isn’t the best avenue for everyone, though, especially if you tend to be hard on your bags or wear a lot of black.
One of the best things about working at PurseBlog is getting to bounce ideas, stories and opinions off of my coworkers on a daily basis. We’re a tight-knit group, and we all have very distinctive tastes and viewpoints on fashion, style and shopping.
There’s been some noticeable crispness in the morning air lately, and now that the calendar has turned to August, we can no longer avoid the fact that fall is coming at us. While it’s too warm during the days for fall clothes, there are little ways that you can start your seasonal transition without producing any excess sweat; one of the best is with a new nail polish.
It wasn’t that long ago that holding any of the Kardashians up as style inspiration would have seemed a bit silly; for people who consistently wore expensive clothes, bags and shoes, the finished product just never felt all that chic.
I walk through Grand Central Terminal twice a day, five days a week, and during that portion of my commute, I have a weird little opportunity to take stock of what an enormous swath of New York City is wearing.
As much as we’d like to give everyone a handbag for the holidays (and we really, really would), that’s just not an idea that’s within our budgets this year. Makeup, skincare and haircare, on the other hand, are a much more price-flexible gift idea; a $30 eyeshadow palette is delightful, but so is a $600 set of Tom Ford lipsticks.
